Mountain flying:
Do you want to experience the thrill of paragliding?
If you have already tried a paragliding flight and/or want a longer flight, you can join us for a tandem paragliding flight at higher altitude.
The mountain flight is a flight in active air conditions where your pilot will look for the ascending currents in order to go higher in altitude and fly like the birds.

From Belle Plagne, we will take you to the Col de L'Arpette in our 4X4, offering an opportunity to observe the superb panorama that awaits you: the Col du Petit Saint Bernard, the Mont Blanc massif, the Beaufortain massif and the Foran valley with the fabulous Pierra Menta!

This tandem flight takes off in the early or late afternoon from the top of the Arpette mountain pastures at an altitude of 2300 metres. You take off for a 30 to 45 minute "sporty" flight with an unobstructed view of the peaks surrounding the La Plagne ski area. Enjoy the magnificent colours of the end of the day over Les Bourtes and the Tarentaise valley from the air.

You will have the opportunity to take the controls during the flight, under the guidance of your qualified paragliding instructor. If you want, you can also ask for some aerobatics to really get a rush of adrenaline.
We organise the return transport to Belle Plagne.
